Two days into free agency and the second-biggest story developed today with New England’s trade of quarterback Matt Cassel to the Kansas City Chiefs. Cassel and Mike Vrabel to KC for a second-round pick? Sounds like a great deal for the Chiefs and they could swap Cassel with another team.

The Redskins, meanwhile, have finally put the Brinks truck in the garage after a day of spending. The additions Albert Haynesworth and Derrick Dockery and the re-signing of DeAngelo Hall had me thinking about the 2009 starting lineup.


By my count, 20 of the 24 spots are solidified. Here’s my take. Email your suggestions to rohalloran@washingtontimes.


QB: Jason Campbell

RB: Clinton Portis

FB: Mike Sellers

LT: Chris Samuels

LG: Derrick Dockery

C: Casey Rabach

RG: Randy Thomas

RT: Jon Jansen OR Stephon Heyer. Jim Zorn will probably open this competition up at the start of training camp.

TE: Chris Cooley

WR:Santana Moss

WR:Antwaan Randle El



DE:Andre Carter

DT:Albert Haynesworth

DT:Cornelius Griffin

DE:Jason Taylor

SLB:?????. The Redskins should address this spot in the first round but also have a veteran ready to go as a stop gap in case the youngster isn’t ready to go.

MLB:London Fletcher

WLB:Rocky McIntosh

CB:DeAngelo Hall

CB:Carlos Rogers

S:LaRon Landry

S:Chris Horton



P:????. Don’t you think it’s time for the Redskins to sign somebody?

K: Dave Rayner or Shaun Suisham. Another competition that will make the preseason a little interesting.
